Fancy some dirty talk? Read on….
There are those people who are naturally destined to change things, to question things, to push things forward. Dirty (Velten) Doering is such a person. He has a certain feeling for what moves people, is a visionary, entrepreneur, DJ - and a living landmark. Hardly anyone stands for electronic music from Berlin as much as he does.
Dirty Doering is a character artist by the book. His sound is as succinct as the loud laughter and as surprising as the knee-high white energy socks that he likes to wear behind the booth. He is undoubtedly a sommelier of electronic dance music and, depending on the setting and set, sounds so deep, so driving, so groovy, and like 80s synths - but always extremely enchanting and when Dirty plays, it seems as if the dancers leave space and time and is lost in music.
In 2011, Doering founded his label Katermukke together with Sascha Cawa – laying another milestone for international success. Tours and label showcases on all continents follow in the next few years. No big club, no big festival without him. Everyone wants Katermukke, everyone wants Dirty Doering.
He’s been releasing music on the label ever since – no less colorful and varied than his DJ Sets. Whether it’s deep or impellent, weirdly enchanted or crystal clear – DIRTY DOERING and KATERMUKKE don’t tie themselves down but still know where the journey should go: Onwards, escaping daily routines, straight ahead into this insanely liberating feeling, where the beat means everything and the thought of the morning after counts for nothing. LOST IN MUSIC.
His 2018 album 'Euch die Uhren, uns die Zeit' addresses exactly this phenomenon - it pulls you in, sucks you in, drives you on.
In January 2023 the next big work 'Last Exit Space' will be released in collaboration with his longtime companion and friend, Katermukke artist Niconé.
The list of Katermukke releases is longer and top-class than ever. And besides the album, the world will hear a lot from the label boss himself. Good! We celebrate this man and his music from the first bar to the last beat. WE LIKE IT DIRTY
